THE TICKET MADE.
The Work of the Democratic City Convention. R. A. Ling Receives the Nom ination for Mayor. The Successful Aspirants for the Re maining Oftices. A Detailed Report of the Proceedings. The Men Nominated and the Votes They Got—A Lively Session Completed Yesterday. At 10:35 Chairman Ryan called the Democratic city convention to order at Armory hall, and as soon as the dele gates had settled down in the seats al lotted to them, be addressed them as follows: Ghntlembn of this DEMOCRATIC Con vkntion : For the last three days you have had your fingers on the public pulse, and are now perfectly familiar with its complaint. You are assembled here today to conclude the deliberations you commenced on Saturday last, and as there is no boss to direct, or fixed slate to abide by, it is to be expected that there will be a wide difference of opinion among you as to the best policy for you to pursue. I desire to say that it should be borne in mind that all your battles should be fought on the floor of this convention, so that when we leave this bail, we may all be just as good Democrats as before we entered, and bow gracefully to the will of the majority. If you do that you will reflect honor, not only on your selves and he who presides over your deliberations, but also to the great party to whom you belong. At tbe close of Mr. Ryan's remarks, which were greeted with wild applause, Adolph Davis, chairman of the commit tee on order of business, moved to re consider the vote by which the report of that committee had been adopted, in order that the order of business might be changed by placing the nominations of candidates for mayor first instead of last. The motion was seconded by N.C. Bledsoe. A. T. Patton vigorously opposed the motion, as no object had been stated, nor could there be any good and suf ficient reason offered, unless it was done in the interest of some particular can didate, who would lose strength by de ferring the matter for a few hours. If that was the reason the convention ought to know it. He did not want any thing of that kind, and believed the con vention would uphold him in his ob jection. They were there to select a man who should be the choice of the convention and they ought to do their duty faithfully and fearlessly. W. P. Hyatt thought that the propo sition advanced by the previous speaker should be reversed; and said that the fact was patent that "this thing" had been prearranged before the adjourn ment on Saturday evening, in the inter ests of a particular candidate. He very earnestly appealed to the convention to endorse the motion of Mr. Davis. N. C. Bledsoe argued in support of tho motion, that the change would place the head of the ticket where it belonged, lirst. A. Barker was opposed to the change, and pertinently enquired why a kick was not made before the report was adopted Saturday last. R. W. Ready thought that if the mat ter was allowed to remain as it was, tlio interest in the convention would be maintained, and all the delegates would remain. E. C. Bower could see no reason why a change should be made, as the dele gates were all prepared to act in the or der oi business already agreed upon. The motion to reconsider was then put, and voted down by a large majority. Nominations of candidates for the of fice of city clerk were then declared to be in order, and A. T. Patton rose to present the name of Maynard F. Stiles to the convention. He characterized Mr. Stiles as a man seven feet in height, who was known generally as the tall eu calyptus. He had had experience and would prove a very useful man around the mayor's office. Although born in Vermont, a state which produced but few Democrats, he had never known anything else but Democracy, and was a sterling Democrat now. He was a grad uate of Harvard, and an intelligent and highly educated gentleman. He had served two terms as city attorney of Crested Butte, Col., and since his resi dence here had been clerk of the council and city auditor. If elected, he would give the people a clean, honest and in telligent service, and their business matters would be transacted efficiently. Colonel J, J. Ayers in seconding the nomination said he had just three words to say. That M. F. Stiles possessed the qualifications insisted upon by Jefferson, and lie was honest, capable and fit. Major E. W. Burke also seconded the nomination, which he said expressed the sentiment of every independent voter in the city, who was disgusted with the work of the city hall ring. Mr. Stiles was a gentleman worthy of the name of Democrat. A motion to nominate M. F. Stiles unanimously by acclamation was then made, and on being put, carried amid a scene of enthusiasm. Mr. Stiles expressed himself as much gratified at the honor conferred upon him, and assured the convention that he would, if elected, carry out the duties of his office as be came a Democrat. He had followed the fortunes of the Democratic party through good and hard times, and his earliest conceptions of the correctness of the principles of Democracy had only been confirmed by mature thought. The fact that he hail been endorsed by the Reformers did not make him any less a Democrat. On motion it was resolved to limit nominating speeches to two minutes each, one minute only being permitted to those making seconding speeches. The presentation of tbe names of can didates for the office of city assessor were next declared to be in order. Northcraft nominated W.J. A. Smith, a man at whom no one could point the finger of scorn, and »who, by his experi ence in the offices of the city and county assessors, was eminently fitted to hold the position. Judge Guthrie, in presenting the name of W. R. Stephenson to the con vention, said he did so at the earnest so licitation of a number of his friends who were better acquainted with the gentle man than he was. All he knew of Mr. Stephenson was that be had served one term in office, and the city was seven teen cents in debt to him when he stepped out. T. E. Gibbon nominated Adolph THE LOS ANGELES HERALD; THUBSDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 27, 1890. Ramish, a young Democrat who was pre eminently fitted for the position because of his sterling business qualifications. It was a recognized fact that all depart ments of the municipal government were business machines, and should be run by business men. Seconding speeches were made in rapid succession from every quarter of the hall, but Ramish was evidently the most popular of the three candidates. The nominations having been closed, the candidates were called to the plat form, and after being introduced made brief speeches. W. J. A. Smith congratulated the con vention upon the fact that it had three such good names to choose from, either of whom would do honor to the party if elected. He had served eleven years as a deputy in the assessor's office, for eight of which he had been chief deputy, and therefore was confident of hia ability to run the office. He had tried to do his duty to all, and he should still con tinue to do so. W. R. Stephenson was proud of the privilege of addressing the convention. He had tried to do what was right and honest while in office, and would do so again. His fate was in their hands. A. Ramish said he fully realized the importance of the position for which he was a candidate, but felt confident of his ability to fulfill the duties of said office as well ac any man in the city. The roll was then called by precincts, but before the result of the first ballot was made known a number of changes were made in favor of Ramish, whicb oc casioned a delay of considerable dura tion. Finally, however, a motion was made and carried, to the effect that Ramish be declared the nominee of the convention unanimously by acclamation. The next order of business was an nounced to be that of presenting the names of candidates for the office of city auditor. A motion was made to ad journ until 2 o'clock p.m., but was promptly voted down. Jack Narey then rose to a question of privilege, and stated that a rumor was current in the hall to the effect that at a meeting of the Liquor Dealers' associ ation, held at Turner hall on Tuesday night, the saloon men had endorsed Hazard for mayor. He wished the con vention to know that this was not true. Chairman Ryan then asked: "Is there a candidate for auditor?" to which a voice responded, "Yes, a dozen." Ex-Mayor C. E. Thorn said it afforded him a great deal of pleasure to name for the important office of city auditor, Charles M. Williams, whose career he had watched from earliest boy hood to the present time, and whom he knew had followed the right course. He had filled positions in the assessor's, county clerk's and United States land offices with credit to himself and tho party, and he was eminently fitted for the position of auditor. A. Orfila, on behalf of the Spanish- Americana of this city, claimed repre sentation on the municipal ticket, and nominated Frank A. Mauricio, as the only man who could offset the Republi can candidate for the same office. T. E. Gibbon, in nominating John D. Schieck, said that it was not only good policy, but it was also in good taste in selecting business men to transact the city's business, to choose men "to the manor born." Such an one was Mr. Schieck. lie had for the past thirty years seen Eos Angeles grow from a small pueblo to a vast city, and he de served recognition at the hands of the Democratic party. Messrs. Northcraft and Carlton sec onded Frank A. Mauricio, and Willig seconded the nomination of J. D. Schieck. A. Parker nominated Fred Potts, a young man who was known to every Democrat in the city, and who came of a nice family. J. Davidson and A. T. Patton seconded J. D. Schieck; R. R. Dominguez per formed a like office for F. A. Mauricio, while R. B. Powell seconded Fred Potts. On motion of Nordholt, the nomina tions were then closed, and balloting was proceeded with,|which ( resulted, after a number of changes had been made, in favor of Schieck and Mauricio, as fol lows: F. A. Mauricio, 89; J. D. Schieck, 77; CM. Williams, 22; Fred Potts, 1. Total, 189. Necessary for a choice, 95. None of t he candidates having received the necessary number of votes, thechair ordered the secretary to call tho roll for a second ballot. Motions to adjourn were made and ruled out of order by the chairman, and for several minutes n scene of confusion took place. Finally, however, order was restored, and the majority being in favor of continuing, the second ballot was proceeded with and resulted as fol lows :F. A. Mauricio, 97; J. D. Schieck, 90 ;C. M. Williams, 1 ; total, 188; neces sary for a choice, 95. On motion of T. E. Gibbon, the nomi nation of F. A. Mauricio was then de clared unanimous by acclamation ; and on motion of Judge Guthrie a recess was taken until 1:30 o'clock. Afternoon Session. It was 1:45 o'clock before all the dele gates got together again, but Chairman Ryan at once called them to order and announced that nominations for city treasurer would be entertained. Fred darkness presented the name of 1. 11. Polk, and referring to that gentle man's connection with the Southern Pacific Railroad company, and the IT. S. land office, said that no further remarks were necessary. Mr. Polk was a Demo crat, and was in every respect qualified to fill the office he sought at the hands of his party, lie was not the nominee of any bank, clique or corporation. On motion of R. Doininguez the nom inations were closed nnd Mr. Polk was nominated by acclamation. Mr. Polk briefly thanked the conven tion for the honor it had conferred on him, and pledged himself if elected to fulfill the duties of his office according to law. The next order of business was that of nominating candidates for the office of city attorney. J. T. Hoax, in presenting the name of Frank Howard, said that happily for him, .and fortunately for the gentleman he named, he needed no laudation. His long residence in this city had made his name a household word with its citizens. As a true index of the character he bore, he called attention to the fact that the reformers had, unsolicited, recom mended bis nomination. He was a worthy son of a worthy sue. Judge A. J. King nominated J.Marion Brooks, and said that it afforded him great pleasure to recommend him for favorable consideration by the conven tion. He was a man of education and accomplishments, and had never sought or aspired to any office to which he had not been elected. As district attorney and city attorney in this an adjoining counties, he had made an unimpeach able record. N. (J. Bledsoe, C. W. Allender, E. C. Bower and R. R. Dominguez seconded Mr. Brooks's nomination in glowing speeches, Mr. Northcraft, E. W. Burke, Judge (iuthne, J. S. Redona and A. T. Patton seconding that of Frank Howard with equal zest. The nominations were then closed and the two candidates met on the platform and shook hands, amid ringing cheers from their respective admirers. Frank H. Howard said he came before the convention as a Democrat, and did not think it was necessary to say any thing as to his Democracy. He would only say that be his client a public or a private one, he would do his level best to do hia duty. J. Marion Brooks said he felt it in his bones that if nominated he would be elected, if elected be would stand between the poor man and the great corporations, and would defend his property against en croachment and confiscation. He prom ised to resign, if during his term of office it was found necessary to employ outside counsel to aid him in his duty. A ballot was then taken and resulted as follows: J. Marion Brooks, 105; Frank H. Howard, 80; total, 185. Nec essary for a choice 93. Mr. Brooks was then declared the unanimous nominee of the convention by acclamation. Mr. Brooks was called for and said that he recognized the fact that although he was nominated, he could not be elected unless the delegates assisted him, and he expected that not only they but their wives and daughter*, would work for J. Marion Brooks, the next city attorney. There was a slight delay when the next order of business waa announced, that of placing in nomination candidates for the office of street superintendent. Judge Winder, however, took the floor, and, in nominating Matt Carr, referred to the importanceof the position he sought. Having served in the office under General Baldwin's regime, he was eminently fitted to fill it with credit to himself and satisfaction to his party. T. E. Gibbon nominated Andy Mc- Nally, whom he characterized as a "brick," who had probably done more to build up the city than anyone else in the city. This nomination was received with enthusiastic cheers from all parts of the hall. It was seconded by F. J. Capitain and N. C. Bledsoe, Judge Dupuy performing a like service for Matt Carr. The candidates were then called upon for speeches and fees. Andy McNally said that if he was nominated he was sure of election, no matter what the size or cal iber of his opponent. He had always done his duty by the men with whom he had business dealings, and he would continue to do so with the tax-payers, rich and poor alike. If elected, his sub ordinates should be men of the best ca pabilities and respectable Democrats. Matt Carr said that it seemed that he wasn't, in it. He would, however, if elected, wear the same sized bat he now wore, and if he was not nominated he would work just as hard for the ticket. A ballot was then proceeded with, but when the thirty-fifth precinct was reached Matt Carr, who had only re ceived about thirty votes, retired from the field, and McNally's nomination was made unanimous by acclamation. Andy McNally was again called upon for a speech, and he said briefly that he thanked his friends from the bottom of liis heart for what they had done. He did not intend to waste any time now, but he would make his opponent wear out a pair ot shoes in keeping track of him between now and election day. Hon.M.E.C. Munday then nominated for the important office of city engineer "that elegant young gentleman of learn ing in all its branches," Mr. J. 11. Dock weiler, and in a few words placed his name for favorable consideration before the convention. Fred Harkness sec onded the nomination, and moved that it be declared unanimous by acclama tion. R. B. Powell nominated W. T. Lambie, however, but there was no second, and with the exception of a few dissenting voices, the motion carried. J. H. Dockweiler, on being called to the platform, said it was useless lor him to make a speech. He was known to the major portion of the delegates, and if elected the party would never regret the trust and confidence reposed in him. For the office of tax and license col lector, E. C. Bower nominated W. F. Heathman in a brief eulogistic speech, and on motion of W. P. Hyatt, he was 'declared the unanimous nominee of the convention by acclamation. W. F. Heathman waß called for, and said that until five minutes before his name was placed before the convention, he had no idea of running for office. No man was, however, more willing to step forth and do his duty for the party than he, and if elected, he would assure the public of the safety ot its money. The next order of business was that of nominating five candidates for the board of library trustees. Colonel J. J. Ayers, in presenting the name of E. H. Owens to the convention, said that it afforded him great pleasure to do so. Mr. Owens had lived here a number of years, and he had known him elsewhere for many years. He was one of the most respected citizens of Los An geles, a well informed gentleman, and of a literary turn of mind. W. R. Haizlip was nominated by a delegate from the First ward, but subse quently withdrew. R. R. Dominguez nominated H. Jay Hanchette, who was seconded by R. C. Carlton. W. Meade nominated J. B. Dunlap, who was seconded by N. C. Bledsoe. Judge JWinder placed in nomination the name of Col. J. J. Ayers, who waß seconded by C. W. Allender. A motion to the effect that nominations be closed was made by A. C. Clarke, but was voted down. A. Orfila nominated J. C. Mclnerney. I). M. Scott was nominated by M. W. Conkling, but subsequently withdrew his name. W. P. Hyatt nominated W.W. Phelps, and J. (?. Ward nominated Frank 11. Howard. The nominations were then closed, and, on motion of T. E. Gibbon, it was resolved that the five candidates receiv ing the highest number of votes be de clared the nominees of the convention. The ballot was then taken, and re sulted as follows: Frank 11. Howard, 178; H. Jay Hanchette, 103; J.J. Ayers, 157; E. 11. Owens, 1-10; J. B. Dunlap, 181; W. W. Phelps, 85; J. C. Mclner ney, 9. On motion of D. Pickit, the candi dates were excused from the payment of the usual $6 fees. Hon. M. E. C. Munday, chairman of the city central committee, announced that a meeting of the entire committee would be held at 10 o'clock this morn ing, and that every candidate was ex pected to attend another meeting at 11:80 at the committee rooms in the Downey block. Nominations for the office of mayor were then declared to be in order, and a shout of welcome burst from the throats of the delegates. Judge Winder took the platform and presented the name of J. Shirley Ward, a man whom ho characterized as eminently fitted to occupy the executive chair of this city. His Democracy was unquestioned, and his character and in tegritv were of the highest. He pos sessed the confidence of all men, and if elected, would give Los Angeles a clean and honest administration. His motto was : "He serves the Democratic party best, Who best serves the city." Judge A. J. King said it afforded him great pleasure to second this nomina tion, as Mr. Ward was a gentleman of culture and unblemished character; and he heartily endorsed all that had been said in his favor. E. C. Bower, in nominating R. A. Ling, said he did so with pride, because the name was one against which no one could cay aught. This candidate had always been among the fore most in the ranks of the Democrats when there was any work to be done, and he had always gone down into his pockets to meet the expenses of the party and carry it to success. He had risen from, but was still one of, the people. Mr. Northcraft seconded the nomina tion of R. A. Ling, and eulogized him until called to "time" by the convention. Col. J. J. Ayers said that the other day when the convention adjourned, he had expressed himself as tired of putting up tickets only to have them knocked down. Since then, he had tried his ut most to feel the public pulse, and bring out some one whose victory could be as sured. It was sufficient for him to rise and second the nomination of John Shir ley Ward, to show that he found such a man as was required. He had no doubt that as the head of the ticket, Mr. Ward would carry the whole ticket through, lie advised the convention to act with prudence, as the enemy was strong and cunning. Fred Harkness seconded R. A. Ling's nomination,and said that he was always in favor of the laboring men and would undoubtedly get tbe laboring man's vote. R. B. Powell, J. S. Redona and C. W. Allender seconded the nomination of J. Shirley Ward, and on motion of T. F. Donahue the nominations were then closed. The candidates were called upon to take the platform, and R. A. Ling ad dressed the convention as follows: Mr. Chairman and gentlemen of the convention : I want to say to you that this is the proudest moment of' my life, when I can appear before my fellow citizens asking for the nomination for the high and important office of mayor of this city. I want to say to you that if you give me this nomination, that I will go forth from this hall to battle for the cause, and I will be elected as sure as the Ist of December rolls around. I have been in this tight for a month, and I have faced the battle. I care not who was against me, and if elected I pledge you my word and honor that I will give you a safe, conservative, econ omical and pure an administration as I can possibly give you. I have been here for seventeen years. My family is here. My children were born here, and all that I have in the world near and dear to me is here in the city oi Los Angeles. I pay taxes, I am proud to say, on fifteen thousand dollars' worth of property, and I came here seventeen years ago with a dollar and six bits in my pocket. I went to work to keep my family, at carpentry work, and I don't know whether I made a very good car penter or not, but I did the best I could. Gentlemen, I say to you now, if I am elected there will be no bickerings or strifes in my administration. I will give my time and talents, and every thing I have in the world I give it to serve the people faithfully, honestly, honorably and well. I thank you. John Shirley Ward said that twenty four hours earlier he hail no idea of appearing as a candidate before the con j vention, and in doing so, he came, not to seek an office, but, as far as a num ber of his friends were concerned, it sought him. He was a Democrat of the old school, one of those who had level heads and backbones of iron. He had taken an humble and honest part in every canvass for the past fifteen years. If elected the voice of the people should be to him as the voice of God, and he would concen trate every gift with which he had been endowed for the benefit of the city. He would protect the rights of the poor as well as those of the millionaire, and would let the corporations perish to let the people live. A scene of great excitement ensued, as three cheers were asked for the re spective candidates by A. T. Patton and Fred Harkness.and each side attempted to drown the other's shouts. Order being again restored, a ballot was taken and resulted as follows: R. A. Ling, 118; J. S. Ward, 72. Total, 190. Necessary for a choice, 90. The successful candidate was picked up by a numberof spectators and carried on their shoulders to the platform, when he was again cheered. He thanked his friends bristly and retired. T. F. Donahue move to declare R. A. Ling the unanimous nominee of the con vention, but there were a number of dissenting voices, and the motion barely carried. Chairman Evan then announced that the next order of business was that of dividing the convention into ward con ventions for the purpose of nominating candidates for the council and board of education, to be reported back to the convention. After a recess of almost an hour's duration, the convention again came to order and the reports were read and adopted as follows: City Council. First Ward: F. M. Nickell. Second Ward : D. Innes. Third Ward: C. Gassen. Fourth Ward: V. Ponet, Fifth Ward: Referred to city central committee. Sixth Ward: J. T. Bearden. Seventh Ward: D. McGarry. Eighth Ward : G. Mesnager. Ninth Ward: F. Cobb. Board of Education. First Ward: J. E. Frick. Second Ward: M. C. Marsh. Third Ward: E. Wineburgh. Fourth Ward: C. Lantz. Fifth Ward: A. Crawford. Sixth Ward: J. T. Houx. Seventh Ward: W. F. Nordholt. Eighth Ward: J. T. Gaffey. Ninth Ward: C.M.Richardson. Frank H. Howard announced his re gret at being unable to accept the nom ination of member of the board of library trustees, as he was a membar of the pre sent board, which intended to contest the right of the new board to take charge on legal grounds. On motion of B. E. Taney, the with drawal was accepted and the matter re ferred to the city central committee. Chairman Ryan then thanked the convention for courtesies extended, and on motion of Judge Winder, a vote oi thanks was accorded to Mr. Ryan and the othe/ officers for the efficient man ner in which they performed their arduous duties. On motion of A. C. Clarke, the con vention adjourned sine die. The Corfu Dining Parlors, 130% S.
